The Bone Idol    Items  (Wand/Staff/ Arcane)   (Magical)

Archbishop Midas of the Jovian Temple was a scourge to necromancers of all kinds, from the genuinely malicious to those who were merely talking to the dead with the consent of the families, sending many to burn at the stake, so after his death they took their revenge...and created the Bone Idol.

Living Haunt    Lifeforms  (Constructed)   (Any)

An explosion rocked the city walls as if a hundred mages unleashed their fury upon the peaceful people of Souls'e Province. An instant silence in the wake of the blast was nearly as loud as the noise that erupted right after as another series of explosions followed the first. Then the screaming began. Low at first, then became physical as if a wave of noise punched us all in the gut and sent us to our knees. Even the guards began running, screaming. "The people, they... they are murdering everyone. The city has gone mad. RUN!!!"

Lover's Downfall    Items  (Art and Music)   (Magical)

You find a dusty violin on a stand in the next room. Through the grime of the years, you can tell that it is of excellent make. Perhaps someone can put it to good use? An instrument is meant to be played, after all...

Dark Mantle of D'Geen    Items  (Clothes)   (Magical)

The sound was most troublesome. Long have I been prisoner to Kormack and his evil designs, and the torturous sounds my heart has been cursed to endure has left me cold inside. I endure and ignore. Cold to the pain and the suffering of poor souls around me. Their Fate forsworn as soon as they enter His lair. But this, this atrocity has pierced my now icebound heart and cracked deep into my very soul. The children... The mewling babes that know nothing of their future, nothing of the joys of life. Innocent of horrors of the world and the dread future it holds. How short that future is. I can not get the sound of the mewling infants from my mind, it is seared into memory as a brand on an animals flank forever to remain. Some have even laughed right up till the end and nothing is more damaging to ones sanity than a broken childs laugh.

Lifegiver; holy sword of Linn.    Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Cursed)
Once upon a time this sword may have been a sight to behold,  but no more. Rust and decay now tarnish the metal of this forgotten relic, and those who stumble upon it are more likely to toss it than use it.

Ariel Lorette    NPCs  (Major)   (Criminal/Espionage)

The rain poured down on the city of Grathen in a relentless beat that would marvel the best of drummers. It beat down on the public buildings, with pedestrians streaming in front of, with eyes cast upwards and lips mumbling prayers to Rain Gods. It beat down on the Slums, where thieves were mumbling thanks to their gods for all these people looking up and not at their purses. And it beat down on Ariel Lorette, a girl of 13, escaping from horrors beyond the common person's imagination. Ariel Lorette, with rain streaming down her face and hiding her tears of pain and sorrow and, above all, victory. For Ariel had escaped them. Ariel was free.

The Noble Expertise of Creating the Remaining Organism is a gentlemen's club. People who don't belong call it the Noble Expertise, or perhaps the Expertise, but the people in the club call themselves necromancers, and the club itself N.E.C.R.O.

Rasp's Elixir    Items  (Potion)   (Magical)
Rasp stood atop a rise, surveying the wasted army below him. His undead minions were feeding now; Zombies and animated Skeletons hunched over human corpses, crunching noisily. A smile pulled over his cadaverous face, threatening to tear skin unaccustomed to such an expression - it was not the corpses' flesh his host were feeding on...

Corpsemaker    Lifeforms  (Constructed)   (Any)
It's existence expunged holy thoughts of sanctuary and left me drifting, soul-dead 'long a hellish ocean. Betwixt it's human maw a fresh corpse lay, its weeping face a testament to its posthumous fate.

Anadem of Kormak    Items  (Jewelry)   (Cursed)

Ah, you are awake now I see. Wondrous news. I realized that you have no idea what is transpiring so I will be blunt so you may understand it. It is rumored that you are one of the best jewelers and metalsmiths in the region and for that you are lucky enough to have been chosen to create an item that will change the world. And afterwards, you shall be set free. My word on it.

William and Eleanor Piven    NPCs  (Scenario Based)   (Mystical)

She was known as "Moon Child" by her friends as she only came out at night, and whilst they loved to play with her, those who did so for too long would soon have cause to regret it. He was her father and the town undertaker, with a secret much less savoury role as the town necromancer.

The Moira Chalice of Kormak    Items  (Wand/Staff/ Arcane)   (Cursed)

I watched in horror as the final pieces were infused together with dark magics granted to the mighty Kormak by Shivenhusk Himself. The head from Lord King Vyrkril was placed on a base of blacked bone and thrust into the cold burning fire. I swear I hear it scream in agony. Decnus Kormak smiled at his late king and when he pulled the chalice from the blue flame bare handed, he clutched it covetously. That alone made me afraid.

Mages/ wizards and such use cards (playing cards or tarot cards) as training tools. The patterns created by certain layouts of cards are mnemonic devices to teach key elemental associations and paths. With such interesting names as the Tree of Life, Phoenix's tail, Rythm of Heart, and Balance of the sphere, there pattern represent the matrices used by magic users to focus and present power. Spell processes can be represented by a sequence of cards.

So mages will often be seen handing around hands of cards.

Wizards will have a deck of cards with them. Since cards were used to train wizards in legerdemain, Since they have cards with them, they frequently know how to use them. Guild magic users often have a knack for fancy shuffles, palming cards, and a variety of card tricks and games.
